Inaugural organ concert at Wolfeboro church Aug. 27
A new organ at the First Congregational Church UCC in Wolfeboro will be celebrated at a special inaugural concert on Wednesday, Aug. 27, at 7 p.m., presented by M. Steinert & Sons, Rodgers Instruments Corp. and First Congregational Church UCC in Wolfeboro.
Internationally acclaimed organist Maestro Hector Olivera will be the featured artist on the church’s new Rodgers Infinity 243 organ, which was recently installed by M. Steinert & Sons of Boston, Mass. Refreshments will be served during intermission, and a meet and greet with Maestro Olivera will be held following the concert.
A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Maestro Olivera has performed solo concerts throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia, Central and Latin America, and as guest soloist with prominent symphony orchestras worldwide.
“The Infinity 243 organ is immensely flexible and versatile to satisfy classical, traditional, contemporary and gospel music styles,” according to Paul Murphy, Jr., president of M. Steinert & Sons. “We are confident that the parishioners of the First Congregational Church will be very pleased with their selection.”
The Rodgers Infinity 243 at the First Congregational Church was designed and built by Rodgers Instruments Corp. in Hillsboro, Ore., one of the world’s leading organ builders. The Infinity 243 organ features Rodgers’ exclusive SSC (Sound System on a Chip) state-of-the-art digital technology platform that supports the tonal development of windblown pipe organ sound and speech characteristics of each organ voice.
